When I was a little girl, I wore my hair in long, red pigtails or braids. The little boys had a field day tugging on them! Since I wore them only as a child, for a long while, I assumed braids were only for young girls. But now, braids have made a big comeback, and there are braided styles that are on trend for all ages. Get ready to braid your own hair, or use extensions or clip ons, because braids are everywhere for Fall Here’s an easy and sophisticated “how-to” that flatters just about everyone, using products from AVEDA!
